Pauliina has a wide work experience as a folk music pedagogue. She has been teaching in many organizations in different levels:  working with children at the music schools and for the past 10 years in the professional level.

Pauliina has taught all different kantele models and she also works as an ensemble teacher. As a teacher it's important for Pauliina that the student enjoys playing, no matter what the beginning level or the goals are. It's never too late to start plucking and strumming a kantele!

Pauliina started teaching at the age of 14 and now she works as a lecturer at the Sibelius-Academy folk music department in Helsinki. Her work experience includes Ala-Könni-opisto in Kaustinen, Centria University of Applied Sciences in Kokkola and Karelia University of Applied Sciences in Joensuu.
